WebControl Driver (Native)
#21
Yeah but I am having issues with it showing all my temp sensors at 127.9 degrees. Think it might be the power supply.

Getting ready to buy one of these. There are 2 firmware versions of the WebControl, one with BRE and one with PCL. Does the CQC driver support one of these specifically, or does it not matter?

Has this driver been relatively stable for everyone? I need some digital inputs as well as humidity and was looking at the webcontrol board.

I don't know if its adoption rate has been too high. Mine works fine but I think I've heard the UI has changed and since the driver scrapes the UI there may be some work required for it.

I can share the driver code for others to modify if they like. I would offer to update to handle both old & new UI but I don't quite have to time to really work on it right now.

I just tried this driver on my unit. Didn't work. I'm running the 916 beta. Attached is the log.

It was going along, and doing ok. Then it started parsing the response for digital inputs and failed with a string index error. After that, it started getting URL not fully qualified errors, then it cycled. Not sure if the string index is related to the URL errors or not. But somewhere in the processing of the digital input values it appeared to go wrong.

I'm not sure if you have maybe a newer version, or just have some scenario not forseen originally that's tripped it up. Hard to say without actually testing it in the IDE.

I poked around a bit and noticed its loading index.cgi which isn't valid on my webcontrol. Its index.htm. I changed that part of the driver, but didn't fix it. I thought I might get lucky.

I attached the index.htm file. I renamed it to html because the forums don't like htm.

This is the deepest I've dug into CQC drivers. I've found a few things.

It seems the device I have is significantly different than the one the driver supports. The status page says "Version: v03.02.17". The index.cgi doesn't exist and I can't find the string or similar that the driver references "Temperature 1-8 =". Also the documentation says to references URLs to access the sensors such as http://10.0.1.54/geth1.cgi

So I hacked up the driver. Its not pretty but its working for me Smile
All it does is humidity and temp right now. Hopefully I'll be able to clean it up soon. If someone wants it as is, just let me know.

I never thought I would be writing a CQC driver, but it's true. I've pretty much re-written this thing with all of the original functionality. All but a few bits remain. I was originally just going to make the old driver work, but you know... One thing leads to another. So yea, its basically a rewrite.

It now works on the current Webcontrol PLC units with XML parsing, error checking, faster, better, stronger, etc Smile

My main concern was error checking and taking the driver offline if a sensor disconnects because I'm going to be using this with a DIY thermostat.

Its attached.

Could someone re-post this driver. Because of the forum upgrade the link no longer works.

Thanks
